University of Toronto statement

July 17, 2013

Recent­ly, charges were laid against Pro­fes­sor Ben­jamin Levin of the Ontario Insti­tute for Stud­ies in Edu­ca­tion (OISE). The charges against Pro­fes­sor Levin are extreme­ly seri­ous.  The Uni­ver­si­ty under­stands that an indi­vid­ual is inno­cent until proven guilty. In this case the grav­i­ty of the charges in rela­tion to the mis­sion of OISE is such that Pro­fes­sor Levin has ceased all Uni­ver­si­ty activ­i­ties at this time.
